PFA 100 Club

St Mary and St John Primary School, North Luffenham, is opening up its 100 Club to the village and inviting new people to join in and take part. This is a fantastic way to support your local school, whilst having a bit of a flutter!

For £12.00 per year (only £1.00 per month) you can take part in a monthly draw to win 3 prizes, from £10.00 – £25.00. After prize money, the remaining profit from the 100 Club goes to the school via the PFA to help fund equipment, resources and opportunities for the children.

There are a limited number of places available, but the good news is that anybody can buy a ticket, whether you live locally, are a parent, or a friend of the school, and you can buy as many numbers as you like!

If you’d like to have a go, please contact Tina Sewell on 07796135790 or email tinasewell156@btinternet.com

All participants must be over 16.

Consultation on School Admission Arrangements 2015

Each year admission authorities must set admission arrangements (sometimes referred to as ‘admission policy’).

Admission arrangements must explain how applications for school places will be processed and include a set of criteria that will be applied if there are more applications than places at the school.

Admission authorities must ensure that the arrangements comply with the School Admissions Code and that the practices and the criteria used to decide the allocation of school places is fair, clear and objective.

Where changes are proposed to admission arrangements the admission authority must publicly consult on the proposed arrangements.

Rutland County Council has opened the consultation page on its website where you will find copies of proposed admission arrangements for 2015 that are currently open for consultation. The consultation page can be found on our admissions website at www.rutland.gov.uk/admissions

Have your say on Transport Support for Students in Rutland

Consultation on Proposed Changes to Home to School Transport

Rutland Council is continuing to face a number of challenges. The funding we receive from national Government is reducing and there is a determination to hold back from increasing council tax charges to residents.

The Council sets out to provide the best quality services that can be offered and ensure that best value principals are embedded in everything it does.

The Council has a Medium Term Financial Plan which forecasts the likely income and revenue streams facing the Council on a rolling five year basis. In line with this, the Council needs to continue to make financial efficiencies in order to ensure that future financial targets are met.

In line with the above, the Council has been looking at transport costs with a view to ceasing any transport which is non-statutory.

Whilst many local authorities across the country have already taken action to stop providing discretionary transport, Rutland has maintained provision. However, it was agreed at the Council’s Cabinet on Tuesday 20 August to seek the public views on the withdrawal of denominational and post 16 transport. The details are summarised below:

Denominational transport

The Council spent £95,000 in the 2012/13 academic year supporting 40 students to faith based schools. Whilst students contribute £253.50 each toward the cost of their transport the net cost of providing denominational transport is expensive to maintain. Indications are that student numbers are likely to grow in the 2013/14 academic year.

The Council would like to seek views on the following two options:

(i) To withdraw denominational transport entirely with effect from September 2014. This option would mean that ALL denominational transport support would cease after July 2013 including those already receiving transport support.

(ii) To introduce a phased withdrawal of denominational transport from September 2014. This option would mean that no new students will be given transport support after July 2013 BUT existing students would continue to receive transport support until the end of their current school placement.

Post 16 Transport

During the 2012/13 academic year the council spent £94,000 supporting 90 students to various post 16 colleges. Students contributed £332 toward the cost of providing the transport.

The Council would like to seek views on the following two options:

(i) To withdraw post 16 entirely with effect from September 2014. This option would mean that ALL post 16 transport support would cease after July 2013 including those already receiving transport support.

(ii) To introduce a phased withdrawal of post 16 transport from September 2014. This option would mean that no new students will be given transport support after July 2013 BUT existing students would continue to receive transport support until the end of their current school placement.

Consultation

The Council would like to take into account the views of residents and partners in developing our final proposals. Should you wish to express your views, please contact Rutland County Council:

tel: 01572 758 451 or email: transport@rutland.gov.uk

Responses should be received by Thursday 26 September 2013 at the latest.

What happens next?

All responses arising from the consultation will be fed back to Council’s Cabinet in October. The final results of the consultation exercise and any actions will be published on the website in due course.

Do you have…I say, do you have a Cockerel missing?

A close resemblance to the missing Cockerel

The real missing Cockerel moved to fast for the camera, so this is a close…ish photofit resemblance to the Cockerel that has gone AWOL.

Foghorn Leghorn (aka a Cockerel) has taken up residence in the school field, and it has..I say, it has now outstayed its welcome!

It must belong…I say, it must belong to someone, and the school would really like to see it leave!

If you know who…I say, if you know who the Cockerel might belong to, please ask them to contact the school office on tel: 01780 720184 to arrange collection.

…That’s all folks!
